We investigate the problem of sparse optimal controls for the so-called Schlögl model and the FitzHugh-Nagumo system. In these reaction-diffusion equations, traveling wave fronts occur that can be controlled in different ways. The L-norm of the distributed control is included in the objective functional so that optimal controls exhibit effects of sparsity… CONTINUE READING
